The second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump fizzled to a predictable close on Saturday as senators voted largely along party lines to acquit the U.S. president of the charge against him, ending a historic chapter in American political history. 

Trump was acquitted on the charge—”incitement of insurrection”—by a vote of 57-43, failing to achieve the necessary threshold of 67 votes.

Democrats alleged during a five-day-long trial that Trump incited the capitol riot on January 6, 2021. Seven GOP senators, Burr, Collins, Cassidy, Murkowski, Romney, Sasse and Toomey joined Democrats in voting “guilty.”.
